OJ Fish'n'Rice Bake

Recipes / Little Meals

These are our favourite kind of recipes: chuck it all into a dish, whack it in the oven, and wait for the magic to happen! This light yet hearty fish bake is a perfect midweek dinner for those evenings when you may not have a great deal of time but still want a meal that leaves you wishing it was as never-ending as Mary Poppins’ carpet bag!


The delicate coconutty flavour combined with the zing of the orange will have your little ones licking their lips for more. Getting them hooked on fish is a great way of filling their bellies with proteins, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for healthy brain, eye, and nerve development in babies and children. Eating fish has also been linked to better sleep - and there are plenty of us who could do with a little more of that!
